HONORS 495BH: Front Page II
Instructor: Michael Klein
TUES 2:30-3:20, Elm 226
This course engages students in reading domestic and international news outlets and reflecting upon and discussing contemporary issues. Students from all majors are welcome, as the principal prerequisite is an interest in learning more about current events in the US and around the world and discussions with your peers. Front Page has two main goals: to engage students in learning and thinking critically about contemporary events, and to develop your capacity to speak effectively in group settings. This is an informal, student-centered class: students run the discussions, do most of the talking, and share different perspectives. All serious perspectives are welcomed. Readings include the online version of the New York Times and one international news outlet of your choice.
Please note: This 1-credit seminar does NOT fulfill 3-or-more-credit honors course requirements.
